LONG ISLAND CITY, N.Y.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--FreshDirect makes history again today with the national launch of the first grocer payments application for the battery-powered Dynamics ePlate™ credit card device. The innovated offering lets consumers earn credits towards their groceries with every purchase. “Now consumers can gain credits towards quality fresh foods just by making their daily purchases.” When the FreshDirect experience™ application is selected on their ePlate device, a consumer will earn additional savings at FreshDirect, as they use their Dynamics ePlate™ credit card device for their everyday purchases. Consumers can sign up for a battery-powered Dynamics ePlate™ credit card device atwww.dynamicsinc.com/freshdirect “We’re thrilled to be teaming up with Dynamics Inc. to provide this one-of-a-kind experience™ application,” said Jason Ackerman, CEO of FreshDirect. “Now consumers can gain credits towards quality fresh foods just by making their daily purchases.” “The FreshDirect experience gives consumers both quality and convenience,” said Jeff Mullen, CEO of Dynamics. “If a user does not have time to visit a grocer, that user can immediately begin to earn credits towards quality foods at FreshDirect by using the experience™ application.” The ePlate™ credit card device is subject to a credit approval. How It Works
ePlate™ is connected to an ecosystem of experience providers that each delivers an individualized brand experience, through an experience™ application, to the consumer. Prior to a purchase, consumers select multiple experience™ applications on their smart phone, tablet, or computer to port to their ePlate™ device. At the time of purchase, the consumer can use different buttons on their ePlate™ device to select different experience™ applications. To learn more about the ePlate™ device, watch the video at www.dynamicsinc.com. FreshDirect is an online grocer that delivers to residences and offices in the New York City metropolitan area. FreshDirect also offers next-day delivery to most of Manhattan and parts of Brooklyn, Queens, The Bronx, Staten Island, Nassau County, Westchester County, Fairfield County, Hoboken, New Jersey and Jersey City, New Jersey. The company was founded in July 2001 by Joseph Fedele and Jason Ackerman; FreshDirect pronounced to the New York area that it was “the new way to shop for food.” FreshDirect has had some problems through the years begin challenged by local grocery stores offering the same type of service and parking problems among a few.
Jason Ackerman is the current CEO of FreshDirect.
The last total sales that I found were in 2008. In an article written by Mark Hamstra states that back in 2008 FreshDirect revenues of $215 million, and is projecting an increase of nearly 12% for 2009, to about $240 million. http://supermarketnews.com/retail-amp-financial/freshdirect-drives-profit-gains#ixzz223N8llfv
